Kimberly Jones Appointed Maine Township Trustee
July 23, 2014 — The Maine Township Board of Trustees voted unanimously at its meeting last night to appoint Kimberly Jones of Park Ridge as the newest Maine Township Trustee. Jones is a former 3rd Ward Alderman for the City of Park Ridge (2005-2007) and more recently a member of the Park Ridge Flood Task Force.
Following the vote by the Township Board, Jones was sworn into office by Gary K. Warner, Township Clerk.
Jones fills the vacancy left when Susan Moylan Krey of Des Plaines was appointed as Township Assessor in May. Krey filled that vacancy left by the passing of Assessor Tom Rueckert who had served since first being elected in 1985.
"Kimberly brings a lot of valuable community experience to the Trustee position," said Maine Township Supervisor Carol A. Teschky. "She has shown a real commitment over the years to faithfully serve her community as a volunteer and elected official."
Jones grew up in Park Ridge attending Franklin and Emerson Schools before going to Maine East High School. She later graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing from Loyola University. Her professional career has involved administration roles in banking and real estate as well as facility maintenance.
She was also a member of the Park Ridge Mayor's Advisory Committee. As an Alderman, she served on the Public Works and Public Safety Committees and served as Liaison to the Park Ridge Youth Commission.
